Aer Lingus is to fly direct from Dublin to Philadelphia from late March 2018. The airline will fly to Philadelphia International Airport four times weekly on Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday. The route launches on Monday 26 March 2018.
This is the latest addition to a growing portfolio of transatlantic routes for Aer Lingus from Dublin. It has just launched Miami. It has also launched Los Angeles, Hartford, Newark and Washington Dulles in recent years.
The route will be codeshared with BA and it will be possible, via ba.com to book a one-stop flight from London to Philadelphia via Dublin with the benefit of US customs & immigration pre-clearance and a direct flight back from Philadelphia to London. BA and American Airlines operate three daily return flights between London Heathrow and Philadelphia. Delta is to suspend London Heathrow – Philadelphia from Sunday 24 March 2018.
Rather frustratingly, there’s still no word on Aer Lingus joining the transatlantic joint-business with American Airlines, BA, Finnair and Iberia. In addition, no date has been set for Aer Lingus to join the Oneworld alliance.
